Latest Fire Safety Regulations UK 2023
The Government continues to implement new legislation following the Hackett review and Grenfell Tower Inquiry. This has resulted in amendments to the existing Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (Fire Safety Order) which governs day to day fire safety.
The Fire Safety Act 2021 (FSA 2021), came into force in England in May 2022 and is now fully operational in both Wales and England.
Amidst the publicity associated with the passage into law of the Building Safety Act and the significant challenges it imposes for all operating
in the built environment sector, it is important to note that there are also very challenging new fire safety regulations – the Fire Safety (England) Regulations 2022 (Fire Safety Regulations) – which came into force on 23 January 2023.
The Fire Safety Regulations apply to multi-occupied residential buildings in England only and impose rules for;
• non-high rise buildings – for example, fire safety instructions must be provided to residents
• buildings over 11 metres – for example, annual checks of fire doors must be carried out
• and buildings over 18 metres – for example, floor plans must now be provided to Fire and Rescue Services.
